ICF Ireland, Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Waterford Chamber Skillnet are excited to announce their new partnership. They are joining together to augment the coaching support on the highly successful and impactful Regional Leaders Programme for the coming 2024/2025 session.

The Regional Leaders Programme is designed by the business community, for the business community. The programme provides an important platform for experienced leaders to enhance their career, testament to its seven years success and its in excess of 500 alumni. Together these alumni ensure a powerful network of business people supporting each other.

Building on other ICF partnerships such as with Ulster University and Northside Partnership, ICF Ireland continually seeks opportunities to enhance the role and impact of coaching in society. This is a fantastic opportunity for experienced ICF coaches in Ireland to work with a range of business leaders, bringing their own expertise while also strengthening their coaching muscle and network across a variety of industries and contexts.

We are therefore looking for ICF coaches to volunteer some time over the course of the programme to support aspiring and experienced managers/ senior leaders to reach their leadership goals and potential. This prestigious programme boasts a significant breadth of impressive leaders across industry at various stages of their leadership journey. This is an opportunity that would suit ICF coaches  with experience in industry, business and entrepreneurism, even if early on their own coaching experience.

The commitment involves:

Each coach agrees to coach two people, for a minimum of three sessions over a six month period, between September and April. This equates to six meetings in six months.

Meetings can take place virtually and at a time convenient for coach and coachee. The meetings can be scheduled directly with the coachee or can be arranged by Waterford Chamber.

In return, ICF coaches are welcome to attend any of the monthly networking and speaker events which Waterford Chamber hosts on this programme. Volunteer coaches are also invited to the opening and closing lunches in the beautiful Faithlegg House Hotel.
